Arvind Mishra, Balodabazar, The news of book copy traders selling books at their own price instead of the fixed price was prominently broadcast by Lalluram.com. Now this news has had an impact. Collector KL Chauhan took cognizance of the complaint and news of the parents and formed an investigation committee to take action against the looted book depot. The investigation committee constituted under the chairmanship of Additional Collector has started the investigation by reaching the Weights and Measures Department Book Depot. In which prima facie a case has come to light by writing more than the prescribed price. On which notice has been issued to the shopkeeper and the publisher.

The Weights and Measures Department has taken raid and issued a show cause notice against Sunil Book Depot Balodabazar and HarperCollins Publisher Gurugram Haryana under the Legal Metrology Act 2009. Instructions have been given to submit the reply to the said notice within 10 days.

Weights and Measures Department official Damodar Verma, who arrived during the inspection, said that during the investigation, the maximum retail price mentioned in Collins Revised English Grammar and Composition Class 6 was found to be Rs 474.00. The maximum retail price of the previously printed or used insert has been changed to Rs 439.00, which is prima facie a violation of Rule 18 of the Legal Metrology (Packaged Items) Rules 2011. Similarly, notice has also been issued to Arrow Publications Private Limited, Hyderabad. Also, Collector KL Chauhan has instructed the officers of the Weights and Measures Department to conduct comprehensive inspection in all the book depots.

Let us tell you that in a stationary named Sunil Book Depot, the real price of copy-book is being hidden and it is being sold at an arbitrary price. Parents have shared this video on social media. In this shop, the book is being sold at a separate rate above the price written on it. Palaks have also complained about this to the collector.
